Corpus Christi Procession

Saint Juliana, from her early youth, had a great veneration for the Blessed Sacrament, and always longed for a special feast in its honor. This desire is said to have been increased by a vision of the Church under the appearance of the full moon having one dark spot, which signified the absence of such a solemnity.

We had a lovely procession in honor of Corpus Christi....... our procession was unique and special in that it happened between the Ordinary and Extra Ordinary Forms of the Mass.  We are all one in Christ.  The pictures speak for themselves.....

On our way home we noticed a very amazing spectacle and surprise.  I'm sure it had nothing to do with one of the very awesome Knights of Columbus who was in our beautiful procession who happens to live right next door.....  but that this little guy miraculously appeared in the night! :D

And one little funny for the procession.  While the Ordinary Form of the Mass was going on the rest of us to join in the procession met in the basement. I got myself all set up with the Moby Wrap to carry Marigold in the procession.  Suddenly it was time for us choir members to go up and get moving into the procession, I got to the top of the church stairs and realized I had forgotten the baby in the basement (another reason for good marriages is that if one forgets the baby the other picks up the slack).  So I had to run back down to the basement and get her.  If you don't know what a Moby Wrap is envision about a dozen feet of fabric that you wind up around your body and then strategically rearrange the baby's arms and legs inside the whole works.  If you have used a Moby Wrap (which is awesome for carrying babies for long periods of time), you will know that this isn't something you want to mess with when you are in a panic!  So while I was trying to get up into this procession, sing and put the baby into this contraption... and take a few pictures at the same time, I had to remove her 3 times. It was a most absurd situation. Fortunately the procession only improved from that point! :)  Incidentally... thankfully, I have 1 special gift... I can multi-task... to the max! :D
